Benjamin Spike Saunders - "Delicate"

If you're writing a press release trying to get our attention, it helps to state "Benjamin Spike Saunders wants to do standup, but he’s too much of a coward. Instead, Benjamin decided to stick to what he knows: button collecting, making creepy dolls, and writing music in his room" and "‘Tonsil Wife’ is his first ill-fated shot at stardom." 

Now that our attention has been gotten, let's focus on the song "Delicate." Saunders nails the self-recorded bedroom genre perfectly. "Delicate" sounds like exactly what the title suggests. It's a quiet, heartfelt indie rock gem. While you're listening you feel like you're invading Saunders's privacy by how intimate it feels. What's great about modern recording is that it still sounds well produced. This is hardly the cassette recordings of our youth. 

You can watch the video for "Delicate" below. Tonsil Wife, the upcoming release from Benjamin Spike Saunders, will be out October 18th on Leisure Records. You can pre-order it here. For more on Benjamin Spike Saunders, check out his Facebook.
